Jeff Dunham and his posse of witty and snarky puppets will grace the stage of the Grand Event Center at the Grand Casino Hotel and Resort in Shawnee, Okla. on Aug. 16 2014.
Tickets start at $65 and go on sale June 1, 2014 at 9 a.m. Dunham will perform two shows, one at 6 p.m. and one at 9 p.m.
The ventriloquist will be accompanied on stage by his comedic suitcase crew. Achmed the Dead Terrorist; Walter the grumpy old man; Peanut the furry purple antagonist; José Jalapeño on a Stick; the son of Achmed, Achmed Jr.; the redneck country bumpkin Bubba J; and oddly enough, Peanut’s own puppet, “Little Jeff.”
Dunham has traveled world-wide on four different tours and performed at several festivals. In 2013, Dunham received the Top Comedy Award for three consecutive years from Billboard’s Touring Awards. Dunham’s Comedy Central specials have been their highest rated programs ever, and Time Magazine has named him the most popular comedian in the U.S.
Dunham’s most recent project is “Achmed Saves America.” His most controversial character Achmed the Dead Terrorist, is set in an animated movie where Achmed ironically celebrates the joys of what makes America great. The film is currently available on DVD and digital download and is set to have its TV premier on CMT March 28, 2014.
The Disorderly Conduct Tour is Dunham’s fourth world-wide tour and will also be his fourth time to perform in Oklahoma.
Grand Casino Hotel and Resort is located off of Interstate 40 in Shawnee, Okla. Ticket prices and information is available by calling 405-964-7263, at the Grand Casino Hotel and Resort, or online at www.grandshawnee.com.
